Manufacturer’s Comments:

The Tartan 3400 is both a tribute to the rich history of her predecessors and the embodiment of Tartan Yachts' dedication to advanced construction and equipment technologies. Following in the wake of nearly 1,000 34-foot Tartans, spread over a production run from the late 60's (Tartan 34 Classic) through the late 80's (Tartan 34II), she shares traditional good looks with both models and embraces innovative design elements to simplify sailhandling and provide superior performance. These refinements to the performance cruiser are made possible by Tartan's dedication to advancements in materials and methods, previously available only in the custom boat market or through prohibitively expensive options.

The 3400's sail-handling equipment and overall rig design are aimed at achieving optimum performance with minimum hassle. The mast is built with a unique, integrated, low-friction track system, allowing the full-battened main to be easily raised and lowered within a lazy jack system. Custom-made for Tartan, the carbon-fiber boom is a "trough" design further aiding mainsail drops and mainsail flaking. To cover the main, simply pull over the boom-stored sailcover and you're done. By optimizing the Tartan 3400's strength and weight characteristics and designing an easily driven hull the Tartan 3400's standard headsail can be a smart, roller-furling 100% jib, trimmed to a self-tacking cabintop track. This working sail, with the tack located just aft of the stem, is used for all upwind and heavy-air sailing while providing effortless tacking for sailing shorthanded or in a confined harbor. When sailing off the wind the optional high-clewed furling reacher can be deployed for top performance.
